The "yoginis" of Sunder Nursery

15 November 2019

In the heart of Delhi lies the lush expanse of Sunder Nursery, a Unesco World Heritage Site. Situated next to Humayun’s Tomb, it looks resplendent in its restored avatar, thanks to the efforts of the Nizamuddin Urban Renewal Initiative - a public-private partnership between government bodies and the Aga Khan Trust for Culture. And now this verdant oasis is all set to serve as the backdrop for an art exhibition. 64 sandstone yogini sculptures will cluster around a lotus pond dating back to the medieval era. These will be accompanied by etchings in zinc plates and five sculptures in wood and bronze created by Delhi-based artist Seema Kohli. With this solo exhibition, A Circle Of Our Own, she hopes to create a dialogue between the contemporary and the classic within this heritage setting.
